Somebody grab a broom. The Big Ten is a mess.

Friday morning the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported that Big Ten coaches are kicking around the idea of kicking off the 2020 college football season “around Thanksgiving,” similar to the timeframe the NCAA is considering for college basketball.

Coaches are proposing an eight-game, conference-only schedule. Big Ten officials have also discussed a similar winter option for indoor football, beginning in January.

Wow. What a turn of events. This is great news for all the players and parents that have been fighting back against commissioner Kevin Warren, right? WRONG.

The Big Ten coaches are proposing these plans. The Big Ten presidents are the ones who decided to cancel the 2020 college football season.

Pat Forde described the situation as a “circus.” Coaches won’t listen to presidents and “everyone is pushing their own agenda.”

As the SEC moves forward with college football this fall, the Big Ten is trying not to get left behind. It may already be too late.

    The Big10 coaches remind me of high school kids demanding freedom of speech. You have to respect their effort, but they’re just jousting with windmills.
